Pros: friendly co-workers, great hours, keep all of your tips, get to know your city better than anyone
Cons: witness things in customer homes that may upset you, low wages, use your own gas
"The Customer Is Always Right." This means that if you didn't bring an extra packet of pepper, or if they think the food isn't hot enough, you have to go back and get it and then bring it to them again. It also means that if you close your doors at midnight and they call at 11:57PM, you will make what they order and you will drive the edge of city limits to give it to them with a smile.
I could do that, no problem; it's in my personality to please others. However, it could be difficult when you knew the customers you were standing on the other side of the door from were beating each other, or if you got to a house in the middle of the night and it's a kid left all alone with a wad of money and not a clue what else to do but to hand it to you and hope you know how to make change and that they made an order right. You have to be able to be positive and nothing else.
However, my co-workers were all very friendly and three of my four managers were amazing. I wouldn't trade my experience with them for the world.
I did leave, however, due to poor wages. They claim to pay you minimum wage, but you don't actually get that if you make tips. You really do count on tips from customers, even if it's just keeping the left-over change after they handed you a one-hundred dollar bill and you can only carry up to fifteen to make change so you have to run to a store and then bring it back and make custom change for that person and then they just close the door on you. It's hard on you mentally, and that doesn't even count the time limit you have when you have five deliveries to make on one run and they're all on different ends of town.
TIP: Get a GPS!
